Self-Ligating Brackets


A New Type of Orthodontic Brackets in San Antonio

If you are looking for a happy medium between Invisalign and traditional metal or ceramic braces, self-ligating braces are an excellent option! The SPEED system is a self-litigating device made from nickel titanium. This cutting-edge material makes it easier for Dr. Bebe to operate the opening and closing apertures. It also means that your self-litigating brackets will be strong and reliable so that your treatment will be as quick and efficient as possible. 

SPEED System

The SPEED system has many advantages over traditional braces. First off, there are no elastic ties to get in the way. As a result, patients have found it much easier to keep their teeth and braces clean, which in turn results in better overall oral hygiene during treatment.

Secondly, the self-ligating brackets also cut down on patient discomfort. While traditional brackets are bigger and more obtrusive in the mouth, self-ligating braces are much more form fitting. Because of this, the brackets come in contact with the gums and lips far less often, thus eliminating much of the friction that comes with orthodontic appliances.

Thirdly, the SPEED system is much smaller than regular braces. This means the brackets are discreet and less noticeable, which helps patients feel less self conscious as they move through the treatment process.
